Have you noticed lately that wherever you go people are on their mobile phones? Waiting for transport, on their lunch breaks, passing time while the kids are playing sports, waiting in line to be served. A recent study has shown that on average adults are spending around 2 hours and 45 minutes each day on their mobile phone.
Smart business people are capitalising on this opportunity and are generating thousands to millions of dollars each year in added revenue by simply creating an App or converting their online business or website into an easy to use App.
Whatever the size or type of your business, creating an App will keep you ahead of the competition and show you as a leading provider in your industry, while connecting you with new customers and bringing additional income that otherwise would be going to your competitors.
